. the age-old plan is facing hurdles. problems the set show soul security. medicare is facing trouble. new problems in medicare bug trend it -- drug benefit. from the headlines early part of this decade. major programs that have come below in terms of the social safety net in this country and health care security. while this is an excusable, it is a challenge that has been faced time and time when any program has been unveiled. i find it amazing that those ascribe blame have spent every waking hour of the working toears dismantle, destroy, obstruct, and impede the success of the affordable care act. concerned not about its failure, but about its success. what i hope we will focus on is how to succeed. i want to get a sense when those of us on the committee worked to put this together, we were under the assumption that state- controlled by republican legislatures or governors would put a higher premium on the love of state rights than their dislike of the president or some ideological political opposition. which is why we are seeing far better success in states that have established their o
insurance either through their job or medicarer to the individual mark -- or medicare or the individual market. if you are one of these folks it's reasonable that you might worry if healthcare reform will create changes that's a problem for you. especially when you are bombarded with fear mongering. the first thing you need to know is this. if you already have healthcare, you don't have to do anything. bill: how does that sound? >> it certainly wasn't true. whether he knew of it wasn't true is problematic. if we had 85% of the american people covered by healthcare, why did we throw the whole system out and run into this tremendously mistyifying bureaucratically ensnarled obamacare. we could have done it with a lot less cost and burd to the american people. these things lodge yo -- these y out, what's the matter with these people. the only solution i can think of is to elect republicans in 2014. you saw that, bill clinton was not a great president before we got both houses of congress. he started to work with us and he became a fairly decent president with regard to the political structu
insurance. they don't have a workplace insurance. they are not medicare eligible. they are not a veteran. they want insurance and often struggle with not only price increases at about 16% a year where the average. but everybody is medically underwritten so that any illness, disease, could block you from the market in the first place or put you in a pool that could skyrocket and lock oust. the protection that is the affordable care act added to the individual market, the last market without consumer protections are the very one that is every worker in a small group plan enjoy or in a work site enjoy. you can't be locked out because of a preexisting condition. you must be offered a policy. nur a risk pool so your own disease profile doesn't determine your rates. that is what is happening with that market. more than 50% of the people are not in their policies for a year. a third are there for only six months. it is a very volatile, very expensive, very unprotected marketplace for way too many folks. i have watched you today and watched you being eviss rated over in the house, calls for your
for medicare and medicaid services says the agency will release health care enrollment for healthcare.gov next week. his is two and a half hours. >> the senate committee on health el cation, labor and pensions will please come to order. about five years ago richard streeter, a 47-year-old truck driver from eugene, oregon was frustrated and worried. as "new york times" columnist nicholas chris-off described in his column this weekend, mr. streeter couldn't find affordable insurance in the market. back in the battle days no insurance would cover him. so he just went without care. after months of ignoring pain, he finally went in for a colonoscopy. but he couldn't afford one. the only way he could get it is from a doctor who agreed to take a half payment now and a half payment later whenever he could afford it. after driving 100 miles he ound out he had advanced colon cancer. his doctor said this, it was heartbreaking to see the pain on his face. he got me very angry with people who insisted obamacare is a train wreck when the real train wreck is what people are experiencing every day because the

shows that hospitals charge medicare different amounts, even ten to 20 times what medicare reimburses for the same procedure. this initial analysis also raises questions about how hospitals determine prices and why they vary. the first look at this data reveals there's wide variations around hospitals and here in san francisco. as now also a member of the health service board and as one of the supervisors involved in the snc negotiations, i realized how crucial health care is important. the second item is a resolution to pass legislation to establish full transparency. consumers and employees are asked to pay more and more in premiums and costs. price transparency in the health care market is essential to bring price down. recently the lack of transparency in health karin creases for public employees jeopardizes health care for workers. it's hard to improve rates and we as a board owes to our resident to have more into health care cost so we begin to move toward competitive pricing that benefits all of our resident. we have a line up of speaker for today's hearing and i want to

at the cost per day in the hospital in california for 2011. and what medicare pays and what commercial payers pay and this is adjusted by cost of the living. medicare pays more. for whatever reason, cost per day is higher in san francisco under the medicare program. if you look at commercial payers, they pay much more in san francisco than los angeles. well, one the main reasons is los angeles is a much more competitive market. within 30 miles of usc, there's 70 different hospitals and there's not so much systems so the plans can negotiate to keep prices down. they can pick this hospital and that hospital. they're not forced to take and some markets they are , and that's why prices have gone up. at the bottom you can see this kind of summary measure is in san francisco, commercial plans pay 240 percent of medicare and in los angeles it's close to 200 percent. and that points to the differences in regional competitive structure. can what be done? policies to provide a market. some of these were talked about your earlier speaker. we need to go through and i think we're going to need

, a lot like we just heard senator talking about. the projections around medicare part d, the raid came in significantly. >> are using that in the individual market, insurance rates are going down? >> i didn't say they are going down, but that the rates are lower than even what was predicted. for millions of people in the market, they will actually for the first time ever have some financial help paying for their health insurance. >> we are going to have to move on here. >> mr. chairman, one of the toughest public service jobs i have ever had is the elected insurance commissioner of florida. and one of the most bedeviling insurance markets was the individual insurance policy. because what would happen people would be enticed to come in with cheap health insurance and then over time as the group got older and sicker, there was no control on the rates and they would go up and then they found limited health insurance. that is what the affordable care act is trying to address and we are talking about the individual insurance policies are not the group policies. in this particular case we no
reform was expansion of medicare to provide prescription jugs to senior citizens. d, it wasedicare part enacted during the book administration ended zero then -- during the bush administration and expanded assistance to the needy, increased marketplace choices. medicare part d has been a huge success and anyone who doubts it should think about the terrific hearing chairman nelson held in the aging committee a few weeks ago where democrats and republicans all made this a point. godsendram has been a to millions of seniors by offering lifesaving medicine and it has cost 30% less than the congressional budget office had addicted. but the medicare ascription drug -- prescription drug program did not start out so high. the first few months of that bedlam.was i went back and looked at the newspapers from that time. i will just describe a few of the headlines. in drug plan upset seniors," read one. "a wasteful disaster." become a blunders monster." about thelines medicare prescription drug program, democrats and republicans now, together, say are a success, the headlines of the program are the
to be with you. >> nice to have you. so the medicare chief marilyn tafner testified today she said that the web site is continuing to improve. that brings some sort of sense of contentment to you? i don't know what other words describe. >> well, i guess she could have said it can't get any worse and that would have been accurate as well. no, i'm quite concerned that more people are being cancelled from their insurance than are able to sign up for insurance. in my state of kentucky, which some people are touting as a success, 10 times as many people have lost their insurance as have signed up for obamacare. and the ones that have signed up for obamacare, 8 a% of the people in my state have signed up for medicaid, free healthcare. so i think we are headed towards a lot of problems each if they eventually, you know, figure out the web site, then it's going to hit home how much this is going to cost. >> you know, i just don't get. this everyone is very concerned with the web site. and i understand why because it's been enormously frustrating to people. i never thought that this web site auto would
